ATTA BOY, BMAC!!! YOU DA MANN!!!
I can’t believe we just had a guy on here compare baseball to tennis OMG im going to bed.
Jimmy Joe Jimbob
he golfed that one
Marc from FL…..I said at the beginning of the season that Moylan should have started the season in the Minors on a rehab assignment. Game 3 of the season against the Phillies, he had his first meltown.
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. Brian McCann helped score me LOTS OF POINTS on my fantasy team tonight with that BLAST. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
look, our main problem last year was what???? anyone?? anyone?? the rotation. I would say that FW fixed that… He chose not to resign smoltz, and look at his era now… he chose not to sign TG and guess what, nobody else did either.. He shipped the favorite son to our inner division rival.. He is strapped for cash with our ownership.. Give him time and we will be ok.. bottom line, I like FW.
Freakin Brian McCann! YEAH BABY!!!
THANK YOU BRIAN!!!!!
Like I was saying…I knew this team would pull through! ;P
AND MCFANN GOES ABSOLUTELY CRAZY. GOTTA LUV THIS GUY!!!!!

Like Al Bundy said as he crossed the plate for the New Market Maulers…
I love Luis Ayala. Greg Norton flashback from last year. I was hoping for that and it happened. Just didn’t want to talk it up and jinx it.
Damn it Mac. You had to go and ruin N8’s night!
Whew…still would like to see the Braves go out and get some offensive help…. RF…1B is fine for this year. Kotchman is performing….and a RH RP.
what did I tell you??? That’s my guy!
Nice catch Cody Ross…
Ballgame baby!!! (hopefully) gotta play well this next series.
Gone Viral: You’re right! LOL!
B-MAC!!!!!!!!! My man!!!!
Dare I say it…”Bring on The Scowl” !!!!!
hahahaha nice catch assface
KJ playing center for the fish?
The sad part is even if we win this game thanks to bmac… norton, diory and kj are here for the remainder and wren does nothing tomorrow.
Agreed. You idiots who call a loss and for the team to sell in a tie ballgame are (as Paul Lentz would say) MORONS.
Brian says, “here’s your fist bump!”
Mac will teach them that it ain’t too smart to walk Chipper
Atta Baby LOAF!!!
The Blog owes Mac a cold one.
I’m not watching the game. Did McCann first-bump Hohn as he rounded third?
Rob from SC
And for all the SH** that Peter Moylan has taken this season, he was terrific last inning pitching around the Johnson error.
Marc from FL

Anderson quietly being amazing at the plate, just like every year.
I hope this will resume the momentum we lost…
Keep the runs coming! You can do it Doiry.
G Anderson is finally hitting like he used to with the Angels.
McLouth of the South
Hispanic Norton = automatic out
Moylan & Mac saves our asses^^
Moylan coming back out looks like.
Garrett Anderson has really stepped up his game.
Brian and the Braves really needed that one.
Mr. Garret Anderson still getting done!
Please get rid of Norton, move McClouth to 7 in the batting order, replace Kawakami with Hudson in the starting rotation ASAP, trade Moylan and Acosta for one really good relief pitcher and please Bobby Cox, take off the stupid looking glove in the dugout…….. and give McCann another raise.
MaC..MVP. The Braves wouldn’t be sh– without him.
Peter Moylan delievering in the clutch in that 9th inning is doing wonders for my fantasy team. Nice rip Garret (also on my fantasy team).
While it may have been a little late, I thought the Braves were going to put up a big number tonight. It just hurt not having Prado in the starting line-up and also Escobar getting hurt.
Ok… Tomorrow night’s tickets are no longer for sale… lol
Greg in TN
Big Mac sure fillet’d the fish, didn’t he?
July 30th, 200910:16 pm
Any chance Loaf is a HOFer?
But you don’t understand. When these bloggers play their MLB 09 The Show, they make all the best trades and win 96 percent of their games. And they play on the HARDEST level. Doing it in real life has to be easier than that, which is why Frank and Bobby are idiots.
Wayne in Utah
I’m sitting here, not saying a darn thing, with all the wailing and crying going on here. Everybody sucks, they say.
Didn’t you guys get the memo, we are an OK team, trying to be a good team. So, I flip over to CBS Game Center, cause I think I’m going to throw up if I have to read any more crying.
And as I am sitting there, I am thinking. Mac, hit a dinger to make McFann happy, and to shut these whining idiots up, if only for a few minutes.
Then I look down, and it says McCann hits a three run homer.
There most definitely IS a God! (sorry Paul)
hope matty can get one of his crazy swings to connect and hit one out to left field
LOAF. NICE. Keep it up DIORY. Power hitter up. Here’s that #4 hitter we’ve been missing.
Will mac fist-bump whats-his-name tonight?
ArkyTech Did McCann first-bump Hohn as he rounded third?
Let’s see if Diaz can make em pay for walking Kotch.
Maybe my hints at our demise were premature. lol
July 30th, 200910:17 pm
Gotta say it… I know it isn’t over as we have seen, but you people need to quite your bitching.
Whoever is responsible for letting Schafer, Kelly and Jeff flail away for two and a half months and is stinking with Norton over Conrad who is blowing up Triple A deserves some criticism. I got nothing against that.
And why they waited for two or more months to bring up Hanson, I don’t know. We could have won a lot more games in the first half if not for that crap.
But don’t throw in the damn towel you weak willed little bitches. I’ll take 3 and 3.
The Dodgers aren’t going to know what hit ‘em.
Have some f-ing faith.
and yet another hbp
no, he a loaf’er
OK..now it’s time to break a rib or 2 !!
List of reasons Diory Hernandez is on a major-league roster: he can “play” SS. List of reasons Greg Norton is on a major-league roster:………..I got nothing.
“And for all the SH** that Peter Moylan has taken this season, he was terrific last inning pitching around the Johnson error.”
Yes he was. He basically got 3 DP balls that inning. Gonzo gave up a tough luck hit but didn’t implode either. Give em a little offense boys and they’ll look good.
Just what we need… another hit batter!
Fist bump that bitches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Where’s Mitchell? You POS.
No Platinum Sombrero tonight.
OK….NOW it’s time to bean Ramirez!
No one’s hit a grandslam this year, right?
Sorry for calling you little bitches but you deserved it.
We need more runs. It ain’t over but we’re not dead yet G damn it.
July 30th, 200910:18 pm
Where is Soriano? Is he injured
McCann saved our azz…
Dave, no offense, but your comment is the reason why no one that “matters” in the franchise actually comes to the blog. And the reason Bobby’s wearing a glove is because there’s nothing protecting the dugouts here like there is at every other ballpark in the country (probably cause this is a FOOTBALL STADIUM)
Aight I want to see one of our pitchers have some Testicular Fortitude and Bean one of the marlins batters…!
Our pitchers have been gutless this year…they never throw at anybody…!
What?!?!? Peter Moylan is hitting in a CRUCIAL situation? Stupid Bobby…
Brewdawg, you have fun at the World Series too. Make sure you get a photo with Vazquez and his Cy Young trophy.
But since you opened the can of woopass, I’m gonna pour it all over you.
If you could actually frickin read, you’d realize the MAJORITY of my griping tonight, was directed at the headline writers for the Braves official site referring to Vazquez as a “stopper”. You go ahead and make the argument that THEY are correct. I’m done with it.
The rest of my rants started, after being called names. So blame me for being happy only when I’m miserable, or whatever the hell you said. I’ve been in a PERFECT mood for weeks, and have done NOTHING but praise this team for weeks.
Any other griping has been minor and short lived. So shove it up your ass.
Swing hard Pete….just in case.
ooooh that would have been sweet
Why not use Ross to pinch-hit?
Fantastic. Points to you, my friend.
O.K. down under. Hit ‘um where they ain’t.
Aussie wanted that one.
JUUUUUUSSSSSTTTT missed a hit…
CRAP…. Thought that was a 3 run double!!!
Steve from OH
Church must really be hurting…

Ol’ Kotchman has only 8 fewer RBIs than Chipper. The guy gets a bum rap.
Why is Moylan staying in the game? How productive has he been pitching more than 1 inning?
BMAC is the man but still we are just salvaging one game this series. Huge series versus the Dodgers and our friends Joe Torre and Furcal. We need to take 2 of 3 from the Dodgers.
Quick question – can Conrad play short stop? If not why oh why is Diory up and Conrad in the minors. Of course we will keep asking why oh why is Conrad in the minors when Norton is on the team.
Moylan’s a rally killer
cabravesfan – you called it perfectly – well done! I was loaded and ready for the first blog post, in case you hadn’t noticed.
Mac saves the season for another day at least.
Can Brooks Conrad play Shortstop and send Diory Hernandez down. Also will anyone still question why Kelly makes this team worse whenever he is in the lineup. Norton and Diory are dead weight and needs to go in a package with Mike Gonzalez. I have longer have any confidence in Mike.
How often has Mike had the count in his favor 0-2 and throw this stupid braking ball that ends up over the middle of the plate. He first did it to Beltran and cost us the game and has done it at least four times since the. i say get rid of him.
its not crucial with a 3 run lead… Cant hit Ross because you have no other catchers after him… gotta save him in case the game goes 4 or 5 more innings…
Edward( Bobby Retires after 2009 or Bust )
Moylan is a better hitter than Diory or Norton.
July 30th, 200910:20 pm
Can’t pinch hit Ross. Bobby says we need to save him in case Mac gets hurt in the bottom of the inning
Rob I just think the short bench factored into that one. Don’t know if Bobby plans on still using him next inning.
Rafael – ONE MORE TIME … the bench is empty except for pitchers and David Ross.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
